As pharmacies and corporate wellness centers are evolving into a more expansive health care role, the need for interactive systems is rapidly growing
Burtonsville, MD (PRWEB) January 28, 2011
As the national health care debate continues, the private sector is creating innovative ways of utilizing health information technology to drive down costs, streamline processes and allow individuals to become more proactive in managing their own health. Because they accomplish all of these goals, Lifeclinic International’s new product line of automated self-testing health stations is rapidly increasing in popularity among retail pharmacies, corporate worksites and medical clinics.
“As pharmacies and corporate wellness centers are evolving into a more expansive health care role, the need for interactive systems is rapidly growing,” says Whitsun Lyttle, Lifeclinic Director of Sales and Marketing. Lyttle adds, “Our latest health stations are a time and resource asset; not only do our units measure blood pressure, but they offer a wide variety of other non-invasive tests, such as weight, body-fat, blood oxygen and BMI along with providing important health and OTC/Rx information based on testing outcomes; such as medication or food interactions, diabetes information, or healthy how-to interactive guides. These units can be configured to enable instant consultation with corporate wellness or pharmacy call centers. Users can also track and manage their biometric data securely via mobile devices or a Web browser and then forward it to the health care provider of their choice. All of this cutting-edge technology of interoperability is creating high demand for our Lifeclinic health stations.”
Lifeclinic will be exhibiting this technology at booth 1081 at The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2011 Annual Conference and Exhibition. The Conference will take place at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, February 20- 24, 2011.
